When replacing the lead, we open the lid and insert the lead. To have enough lead in a mechanical pencil, we repeat the process of "opening the lid and inserting the lead" 3 times. Sometimes we drop the lid and spill the lead inside. Then we have an additional process of finding the lid and lead. Even if we are not old enough to have difficulty with subtle movements, we end up repeating this process.
The purpose is this design is to skip the additional process. The design is made so that the lead is easily replaced and does not come out even when the pencil is turned upside down. The inside part of the lid looks like a funnel.
